                             GETTING SOCKED BY SOX
                                In attendance at our FEI Los Angeles Chapter dinner meeting at the Jonathan
                                Club on February 19th will be members of the Institute of Internal Auditors. Our
                                guest speaker, Michael L. Ziering will present the pros and cons of Sarbanes Ox-
                                ley and the effect it is having on a midsized, international company. Mr. Ziering
                                will be answering the following questions. How we are coping with this new legis-
                                lation? What resources are we devoting to compliance with the legislation? Will
                                it be worthwhile in the end? Who benefits from all of this?

                           Michael L. Ziering is President and CEO of Diagnostic Products Corporation
                           (DPC). Based in Los Angeles, Diagnostic Products Corporation is a worldwide
                           provider of immunodiagnostic systems and reagents. DPC's tests supply informa-
                           tion vital to the detection and management of adrenal/pituitary dysfunction, al-
                           lergy, anemia, bone metabolism disturbances, cancer, cardiovascular disease,
                           diabetes, infectious diseases, inflammation, allowing DPC to serve major clinical
                           and veterinary diagnostic areas. Through a team now numbering nearly 2,000
                           employees, DPC maintains the product quality, service and support that have
